Guide to PCMH Recognition

Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC)

The AAAHC Medical Home On-Site Certification evaluates a practice against the AAAHC Standards for a Medical Home. With their accreditation program, surveyors make an on-site visit to assess at the point of care and obtain a patient perspective on how the organization meets these Standards. The AAAHC released a white paper in 2014 titled, “The Medical Home: Avoiding the Rush to Judgment”

The 2018 Accreditation Handbook for Ambulatory Health Care is designed for ambulatory health care organizations seeking AAAHC accreditation.

The AAAHC Medical Home On-Site Certification Handbook provides readers with Standards that describe a certifiable Medical Home as patient-centered, physician- or provider-directed, comprehensive, accessible, and committed to continuity of care.
